Advanced found me the perfect travel job in an outpatient setting. It was such a great match that I ended up staying on as a full time employee. If I decide to ever travel again, I will not hesitate to call Advanced.
After traveling with several different travel companies I found Advanced. I have now completed 3 great assignments and will never leave this company. Finally a company that actually delivers on what they say.
We Just moved into my apartment provided by Advanced and we are loving it! My wife and I are both therapists and the apartment is amazing, it has its own movie theater, fitness center and many other amenities.
I was referred to Advanced by another traveler in my building that worked for them. She kept telling me that they really do customize packages and pay top rates so I called them and that is exactly what they did.
Advanced is a wonderful company that provides diverse travel assignments and generous financial packages for it’s employees. They have knowledgeable staff who are skilled at providing opportunities that fit the unique needs of their employees.
My recruiter always wishes me ‘Happy Friday’ and always makes sure that I don’t feel alone during my assignment. I will continue to refer other therapist to Advanced.
